-Navy to Allow Chaplains to Perform Same-Sex ‘Marriages’ in Naval Chapels?

With the end of  DADT (Don’t ask, Don’t tell) Coming soon, new directions and training are already being given to US military chaplains on how to be accepting of homosexuals in the military. Meanwhile those chaplains who may have some reservations about serving the religious needs of homosexuals are being counseled to quit.

Now comes this new directive from the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains declaring that same-sex couples will be able to get married in Navy chapels with Navy chaplains officiating in those states where homosexual marriages are legal.

The only problem is that DOMA (Defense of Marriage Act) is still the law of the land in spite of the opposition to it by the Obama administration.

Response: Even if and when DADT is fully eliminated if DOMA is still in force and hasn’t been suspended by the courts then it will still be illegal for the federal government to recognize same-sex marriages.

If so, how can it be legal for homosexual marriages to be preformed by Naval chaplains in Naval chapels which are on federal property after all? It won’t, but this administration has demonstrated on a number of different occasions that they’re above the law if they believe it is for the ‘greater good’. Also, the heck with the people and how they may feel about it, or any trite legalities that may get in the way.
